Sir Ivan & Guests Celebrate His New Hit Single “Here Come The Sun” At His Castle in the Hamptons [Photos]
In honor of Recording Artist and Philanthropist Sir Ivan's newly released single, "Here Comes The Sun," which just entered the Billboard Breakout Chart at #4, guests were invited to join him at his legendary Hamptons Castle, a sprawling villa complete with a moat, bridges and a spectacular poolside area.
Upon entering the event, guests were treated to sun-inspired decor and delights, a garden transformed in a tribute to Sir Ivan's single. Giant sunflowers paved a path to the party, where an impressively giant disco ball was suspended over the swimming pool, completed by a state-of-the-art light show, which gave revelers the sense of dancing into the night under the Midnight Sun.
Guests were all required to attend in costume or theme – wearing the colors of the sun: bright yellow, red and orange. A spectacular array of food with sun-inspired ingredients from sunny-side-up eggs to sun-dried tomatoes and sunflowers seeds, welcomed guests, as did specialty cocktails provided by Slovenia Vodka and Passion XO liqueur, which flowed by the dance floor.
The height of the evening came at 11:00pm, when a yellow-caped Sir Ivan shocked the crowd of 300 as he entered the party fashionably late with his matching yellow-caped dog Bambi, in his "Peacemobile," a stretch limo wrapped in hippy icons from the '60s, with psychedelic graphics on the hood and trunk. With giant letters spelling PEACE on both sides of the limo and the words "Make Love Not War" on the hood and trunk, guests lined up all night to take photos with the one of a kind set of wheels. Not since John Lennon did something similar with his Rolls Royce in the '60s has anyone seen anything like it. After performing his hit single to an excited crowd, Sir Ivan announced he will take the "Peacemobile" cross country to launch his anti - bully campaign across the nation. He further stated that the road trip will end in LA where he will film his next music video for "Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye," the anti - bully anthem he co - wrote, produced by legendary DJ Paul Oakenfold, featuring a female vocal by pop star Taylor Dayne and directed by MTV video award winner Erik White. Royalties from the various remixes of "Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye" are being donated to various LGBT anti-bullying organizations including the Trevor Project, where Sir Ivan has already pledged 100,000 thousand dollars.
As the party went on, guests jumped in the pool, where they floated on giant custom sunflowers. Guests stayed hydrated with Jana Water while the dancing spread into the castle and continued late into the night.
